Support for Maemo
Platform support for Maemo.
Qt on Maemo
Qt is a comprehensive application and UI framework for developing Maemo applications that can also be deployed across major device and desktop operating systems without rewriting the source code. If you are developing apps for the Symbian, Mameo platforms in most cases, you can use Qt under the free LGPL licensing option. Qt is cross-platform, and that means that you can use the code from one single code-base and rebuild for all supported platforms. Maemo 6 is now MeeGo.
